                         Draft Call for Presentations
                               39th TechDay
                                at ICANN 64
                                  in Kobe

The ICANN Tech Working Group is again planning a technical workshop at
the ICANN 64 meeting in Kobe on Monday 2019-03-11

The TechDay workshop has been a part of ICANN meetings since 2006 and
has provided a forum for both experienced and new people to meet,
present and discuss technical topics related to registry and DNS work
and security.

We are specially interested in:

1. Planning for the Worst

We all know classic advice to have off-site backup or secondary datac
enters.  What measure can be taken to lessen the impact when disaster
hits?  Is it fine to let the registration system fail, while you
concentrate on keeping DNS service alive?  But what about when disaster
does not hit you, but affects registrants somewhere else in the world?
Do you extend the registration period, to prevent domains from expiring
while they recover?

We are interested in presentations on how registries prepare themselves
for disaster, and especially encourage registries, that were struck by
disaster, to share their experiences.

2. Universal Acceptance

We are quite interested in presentations regarding the above and/or
related to IDN.

3. In addition, we welcome suggestions for additional topics, such as;

* DNS over TCP, DNS over HTTPS

If you are interested in presenting, please email
ccNSO-techday at icann.org

We hope that you can join us and request that you disseminate this
Request to other lists where it might of interest.
